Dodgers stay with Ricky Nolasco
LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers are sticking with starter Ricky Nolasco for Game 4 of the NL Championship Series against St. Louis.
Manager Don Mattingly says it's a tough situation for Nolasco because he hasn't pitched since Sept. 29. As a result, Mattingly says Nolasco's pitch count won't get too high, although he says the right-hander is capable of throwing deep into the game.
The Cardinals lead the series 2-1. They started Lance Lynn on Tuesday night at Dodger Stadium.
Hanley Ramirez and Andre Ethier both started for the Dodgers despite nagging injuries. Shortstop Ramirez is wearing a flak jacket to protect his broken left rib, while Ethier has been bothered by shin splints.
